Wherever Fire Brick is Used 

HYTEMPITE is a scientifically com- 
pounded, plastic, air-setting high tem- 
perature cement, for bonding fire brick 
and silica brick, etc. with thin, strong, 
air-and-gas-tight joints ; for making air- 
setting plastic refractory mixtures used 
in building monolithic GAS/TITE baf- 
fles, and for quick hot-or-cold furnace 
repairs. It can be used as a binder wher- 
ever fire brick, silica brick, or granular 
refractories are used. 

HYTEMPITE forms a lasting union be- 
tween the materials joined. Retains its 
strength up to temperatures at which standard 
fire brick soften and fail, yet permits expan- 
sion and contraction of the bonded structure. 
Does not depend on heat for its adhesive quali- 
ties (air-sets at normal temperatures). Heat 
merely increases the strength of the bond and 
quick temperature changes do not weaken it. 

HYTEMPITE has exceptional plasticity. It stays in 
uniform suspension and spreads easily. The smooth 
texture of HYTEMPITE, coupled with its strong bond- 
ing qualities, permits of thin, strong joints between 
brick, tile or shapes — in accordance with modern 
approved engineering practice. 

HYTEMPITE is light in weight per unit of volume. 
A given quantity of HYTEMPITE (varying according 
to the care exercised, texture, density and uniformity 
of the brick) will lay more brick than the same quan-

tity of most other cements. HYTEMPITE is made 
entirely from virgin materials — does not contain 
ground brick or other aggregate as a base. 

HYTEMPITE is bought by the pound — used by 

Experience of users has proved that from 225 to 350 
pounds of HYTEMPITE (or even less) will lay 1000 
standard fire brick with "dipped" or brick-to-brick 
joints, according to uniformity of the brick. 

HYTEMPITE forms a lasting bond — all the way 
through the joint — not a surface bond— thus producing 
a virtually monolithic air-and-gas-tight structure. Will 
not disintegrate or crumble out of the joint. The me- 
chanical strength of furnace walls and boiler settings 
laid with HYTEMPITE has been demonstrated under 
many severe service conditions. 

HYTEMPITE insures a labor-saving and durable 
refractory construction. It has PROVED dependable 
and economical.

HYTEMPITE is used for bonding fire clay brick and tile 
with thin, strong, air-and-gas-tight joints. 

For this purpose, take HYTEMPITE as it comes in the drum, 
and put it into a mortar box. Add water slowly and reduce to a 
heavy "pancake" batter consistency. This is HYTEMPITE 
"batter" — and is the mixture to be used for laying fire brick. 
Fresh water (never salt water) should always be used for 
diluting HYTEMPITE. Dip brick in the batter, squeeze or 
tamp in place to insure a close fit. 

After laying up new brickwork treat the surface first with a thin white- 
wash coat of HYTEMPITE, followed by a coat of the same batter mixture 
as used for laying the brick. This fills the pores and fractured edges of 
brick; and will give a practically one-piece structure — gas-and-air-tight. 
HYTEMPITE will not loosen and crumble out of the joints with sudden 
changes of temperature. 

A drying fire may be started immediately after the brickwork has been 
completed without affecting the bond. 

When HYTEMPITE is used for bonding the brickwork, a structure is 
produced in which the joints are as strong and resistant as the brick 
itself, thus definitely prolonging the life of furnace linings. 


In many cases a major repair to a boiler setting or 
furnace lining is avoided by patching eroded areas. 

HYTEMPITE serves with great satisfaction and economy 
for a wide range of furnace repair jobs. It is adapted to point- 
ing up cracks, filling small holes, and patching burned out or 
fallen sections of furnace walls and arches. 

HYTEMPITE is adapted for hot or cold patching — repairs can often 
be made without a shutdown — while the furnace is hot. 

Minor cracks are pointed up with neat (undiluted) HYTEMPITE. 

HYTEMPITE requires no heat to effect a bond, so that the newly 
applied patch can be built up in the hole or crevice, and become an integral 
part of the structure. 

When a monolithic patch or replacement is desired — such as a large wall 
patch to replace eroded brickwork — best practice is to remove any glaze 
or clinker from the area to be patched, then apply a thin wash-coat of 
diluted HYTEMPITE, after which follow with a bonding coat of neat 
(undiluted) HYTEMPITE, and then plug the area with MONO-LINE 
(Plastic Fire Brick), ramming or pounding same into place.

Or in many cases, where old crushed fire brick is 
available, eroded areas may be patched with a mixture 
of HYTEMPITE and suitable refractory aggregate. 
Such patches may be rammed in behind a wood form 
or applied with the QUIGLEY REFRACTORY GUN 
(described on page 19). Unless wall surface affords 

good anchorage, patches greater than 2V* -in. thick- 
ness should not be applied either by hand or GUN with- 
out bringing furnace up to full operating temperatures. 

Tables of approximate mixtures given below will 
serve as a guide in the various uses of HYTEMPITE. 
Full directions accompany each container. 


HYTEMPITE comes prepared and is ready for use by adding a little water, though sometimes used "neat" for 
hot patching of small breaks, etc. It is uniform in grade and analysis. Instructions for use accompany each drum 
or container and when these instructions are followed the results are always most satisfactory. These directions 
are based on the experience of practical fire brick masons and operating engineers who have used HYTEMPITE 
exclusively for many years.

In the above table for mixtures judgment must be used, as the quantities given are approximate. 
HYTEMPITE is recognized the world over as the standard material of its kind. Industrial plants totalling millions 
of horsepower— in this country and abroad— continue, as in years past, to use HYTEMPITE for boiler and fur- 
nace construction and maintenance. 

For all these reasons, users of HYTEMPITE are assured low refractory construction and maintenance co

Engineers everywhere recognize the impor- 
tance of tight boiler baffles which will stand up 
under forced firing and extreme temperature 
variations without developing cracks and leaks. 
Quigley "GAS/TITE" Baffles, vertical or in- 
clined, using HYTEMPITE to bond the refrac- 
tory material, have been installed in power 
plants representing millions of boiler horse- 
power. Thousands of other plants have used 
HYTEMPITE to repair existing baffles, to in- 
crease steaming capacity and save fuel. 


Old fire brick linings crushed to pass 14" mesh, includ- 
ing fines, are mixed with diluted HYTEMPITE. The 
plastic mixture is tamped in place against a wood form 
as shown in the illustrations. If old linings are not 
available, Quigley GANISAND or commercial crushed 
fire brick may be used. GANISAND is a highly refrac- 
tory ganister correctly proportioned as to fine and 
coarse particles for baffles or other work requiring an 


The approximate mixture to use for the tamped method of con- 
struction is in proportion: 

HYTEMPITE, 100 lbs. Crushed Fire Brick or GANISAND, 
100 lbs. 

To calculate the total weight of both materials required for a 
4" baffle, multiply the number of tubes which pass through the 
baffle as follows: 

For Straight Baffle — Number of tubes x 14 pounds 
For Inclined Baffle — Number of tubes x 16 pounds 


Dilute HYTEMPITE with water in a mortar box to the con- 
sistency of a smooth pancake batter. Then gradually add the 
crushed fire brick or GANISAND, mixing thoroughly. The mixed 
materials should be firm enough so that it can be formed into 
balls or cakes and cling together. If a large quantity is mixed, at 
one time, it should be covered with wet bags or burlap to retain 
the moisture, especially if it stands overnight. 

It is best to make the mixture the day before it is to be used, 
if possible, to permit thorough tempering. 


The dimensions here given are based on 4" tubes having 7" 

centers. Other tube diameters and spacing require suitable

2. — Place 1" x 1%" slats down diagonally between tubes and nail

diagonally in opposite direction as shown in "Detail of Form" 
(in circle). Nail or wire these securely at top and bottom. 


The material chute (B) is made from a piece of black or galvan- 
ized sheet iron (about 18 to 24 gauge) 6" wide, by bending up the 
sides one inch, so as to fit between the tubes. These sides are 
slotted at intervals to make the chute flexible. (See Details of

and slide it down

stationed beneath the tubes tamps the material as it is placed, 
using a 1" x 1%" strip. This strip (C) has a shoulder at the end 
so that the material can be worked snugly around the tubes. 

The width of the chute is a guide for maintaining uniform 
thickness of the baffle.

A slow fire may be started as soon as the baffle is completed. 
The form will burn off as the heat is increased or when the boiler 
is put on the line. 

Always add the refractory material to the HYTEMPITE bat- 
ter. NEVER pour the batter over the refractory material. 
Should the mixture become too stiff, it should be reclaimed by 
adding diluted HYTEMPITE batter. Do not attempt to reclaim 
it with water. No trouble has been experienced when withdraw- 
ing tubes and inserting new ones when necessary. 


If baffles are slightly damaged by replacing bent or blistered 
tubes, patch the area around the new tube w r ith the same mixture 
as described for new baffles, tamping the material in place with 
a wood strip. 

Repairs to leaky baffles are readily made with HYTEMPITE 
mixtures — applied with a long paddle, or better still with the 
QUIGLEY REFRACTORY GUN. The GUN nozzle reaches up 
between the tubes and applies the plastic refractory mixture at 
points impossible to repair by hand methods. (See Fig. d7j.) The 
QUIGLEY REFRACTORY GUN is fully described on page 19. 


Many plants which are regularly using HYTEMPITE mix it 
with GANISAND or crushed old fire brick to form special 
shapes — quickly, and at low cost.

A New York bag and paper mill had trouble 
six years ago maintaining six large flat sus- 
pended arches in furnaces. Plant superinten- 
dent said no arch ever had stood up over 8 
months and each renewal cost S1500. Observ- 
ing the advantages of HYTEMPITE he took a 
QUIGLEY GUN and shot a stiff HYTEMPITE 
and GANISAND mixture into the badly 
spalled and eroded arches (holes 4" deep in 
places) and crevices, then built up the entire 
structure to a uniform thickness. Since then 
he has kept all arches in excellent condition by 
veneering a V4" coat of HYTEMPITE and 
GANISAND every 5 weeks — a practice which 
promises to be carried on for years. 

Large Eastern central power station takes 
old fire brick bats mixed with HYTEMPITE 
to build up spalled and eroded areas. The 
maintenance men also cast burner blocks of 
HYTEMPITE and crushed fire brick. For six 
years this station has used more than a ton 
of HYTEMPITE a month. They have tried 
other materials, but nothing comes up to 
HYTEMPITE in performance. An interest- 
ing fact about this particular station is that 
it has the lowest maintenance of the many 
power stations operated by this enormous pub- 
lic utility.

Burning cypress saw mill waste raises havoc 
with fire brick in boiler furnaces and waste 
fuel burners. Quick temperature changes 
from dumping slabs and sawdust, with mois- 
ture and sap in the waste creating steam to 
strike hot walls, are destructive to brick- 
work. But HYTEMPITE thrives on tough 
service. That is why you find experienced 
engineers throughout the lumber industry 
using HYTEMPITE year after year.

largest cypress saw mills writes us : "I have

One of the foremost New York contracting 
corporations, known for its excellent work in 
building boiler settings, baffles and incinera-

successfully used HYTEMPITE on more than 
100 major jobs throughout the country." 

Large Canadian coal company a year ago 
installed HYTEMPITE baffles in a 500-h.p. 
boiler. Success of this installation decided 
them to do the same in their 5 other boilers. 

The continuous and exclusive use of 
HYTEMPITE over a long period of years for

HYTEMPITE has been standard for years in hun- 
dreds of iron and steel plants for many uses, 
such as : 


Laying up brick in wall and top; also for down- 
comers and hot-blast mains. Produces a structure of 
great durability and strength. 


For bonding fire brick and silica brick in walls of furnaces 
and in hot blast main connections. We recommend Q-CHROME 
cement for combustion chamber arches and domes. 


Bonding brickwork in checker chamber and soaking pit covers. 
Holds the brick securely in place, reducing repairs. 


HYTEMPITE, used "neat" for bonding stopped rod sleeve 
tile increases the strength of sleeve, and is resistant to shock 
and rough handling. 


F<n HOT or COLD patching in soaking pits, etc. and for gen- 
eral furnace maintenance work. In conjunction with the 
QUIGLEY GUN. HYTEMPITE mixtures afford the most 
satisfactory and economical solution of the furnace main- 
tenance problem. 

Where HYTEMPITE is used for laying tire brick linings in 
ladles, the faces of the brick should be buttered thin with 
HYTEMPITE batter or the brick may be dipped. Squeeze or 
tamp to insure a close tit, making thin joints. Surface over 
each course with diluted HYTEMPITE after brick are laid. 
Where fire brick linings are used in large ladles some foundry- 

• use a surface cat of HYTEMPITE and finely crushed tire 
brick which will cover all joints, leaving an absolutely smooth 


The weakest pointa in a cupola lining are the joints between 
the blocks or brick, especially around the melting zone. The 
thinner these joints, the less is the Opportunity for erosion 01

When lining or relining the cupola, lay up block and brick 

with HYTEMPITE batter. This gives an air-set bond through 

the I all and prevents breaking of edges, knocking off 

ooi net - of the cupola block and will also prevent penetration of 

etal at joints. 

HYTEMPITE is also used as a bonding coat before daubing; 

and I ace Wash coat after daub is done.

HYTEMPITE is also excellent for bonding and surface coat- 
ing of brickwork in combustion and heating chambers of core 
ovens and annealing furnaces. 


HYTEMPITE, diluted with water, makes a superior core 
wash. Prevents penetration, and strengthens delicate cores. 
Saves time in cleaning of castings and makes a smoother job. 


Use HYTEMPITE for laying up brick in combustion cham- 
bers, roofs, bungs, and flues. It insures strong, durable con- 
struction, reduced maintenance and longer life. There is no 
shrinkage of joints after brick are laid up with HYTEMPITE 
— the bond extends throughout the entire thickness of wall 
or arch. 


Bungs of Malleable Furnaces laid up with HYTEMPITE in- 
sure increased furnace output due to less frequent repairs. 
Hot gases which ordinarily cause crevices between the 
arch brick of the bung are slow to act on the brick when 
HYTEMPITE is used, as the joint is as strong as the brick. 
There is no shrinkage of the joint after the brick are laid 
— the bond extends through the entire thickness of wall or 
arch. HYTEMPITE is not affected by fluctuating tempera- 
tures. It produces a virtually monolithic structure that far 
outlasts bung linings laid up with fire clay or inferior bond- 
ing mortars. 


HYTEMPITE is used for bonding electrode rings, door jambs, 
and for bonding and grouting the roofs. Also for general 


HYTEMPITE, used for laying up brickwork in roofs, side 
walls, door arches and jambs and flues, produces a strong 
virtually monolithic structure of the entire lining — resistant 
to vibration and shock. Reduces spalling due to fluctuations 
in temperature — as it prevents entrance of hot gases or cold 
air between the brick. HYTEMPITE is also the ideal mate- 
rial for pointing up cracks and holes. 


Thousands of tons of HYTEMPITE have been used for laying 
up brickwork, protective surfacing, and repairing gas and oil- 
fired heat treating and annealing furnaces. It is standard for 
this work with a number of the largest plants in the industry. 


Temperatures in annealing furnaces are normally so low as 
to make the use of fire clay decidedly ineffective. (Insufficient 
heat to sinter the clay). HYTEMPITE is recommended for 
laying up brick in walls and also HYTEMPITE mixtures for 
monolithic roof bungs. HYTEMPITE provides an all-tem- 
perature bond.

Many foundries of this type are among the oldest users of HYTEMPITE, which has 
proved its merits for this type of work over a period of more than 20 years: 


Use HYTEMPITE for bonding brick 
in brick-lined melting furnaces; it re- 
duces erosion and increases life. Also 
for pointing and patching linings and 
repairing cracked and broken cru- 
cibles. For such work, the patch air- 
sets quickly and the furnace can be put 
in service without delay. A patch on a 
hot lining can be made with neat (un- 
diluted) HYTEMPITE, and often 
saves a lining from rapid destruction. 


HYTEMPITE . . . for bonding the 
brick in roofs, sidewalls, and resistor 
piers in Bennett, Heroult. Snyder,

HYTEMPITE is widely used for laying up 
silica brick in arch or roof — also for bonding 
and wash-coating of brickwork in flues. It re- 
sists the erosive action of hot ash-laden gases. 
Produces a strong arch which resists spalling 
and flame erosion much more effectively than 
where inferior bonding mortars are used, as 
failure of the arches almost always begins at 
the joints. (Q-CHROME is recommended for 
bonding silica and fire brick in front and side 
walls.) HYTEMPITE mixtures in conjunc- 
are invaluable for reverberatory furnace 
maintenance work. Repairs can often be made 
without a shutdown — while the furnace is hot. 


HYTEMPITE is recommended for laying up silica 
brick in the arch of the furnace. Also for laying up 
all the brickwork in the combustion chamber walls 
and arches. (Q-CHROME is used for laying up the 
silica brick and magnesite brick in the side walls.) 


When used for bonding special hearth shapes, 
HYTEMPITE produces a hearth of great strength. 
Normally roasters are operated at low temperatures, 
insufficient to vitrify or sinter fire clay or heat- 
setting bonding mortars. HYTEMPITE forms a 
strong bond without heat — and retains its strength 
throughout the range of furnace temperatures. It 
is also recommended for bonding combustion cham- 
ber linings. 


For laying silica and fire clay brick in bridge 
walls, side walls and other parts of the furnace. 
HYTEMPITE is recommended. 


Foundry Manager writes: "We have used 
HYTEMPITE with much success in lining 
cupolas. It is, without doubt, the best 
thing for patching we have ever used. 
HYTEMPITE stands the heat and gets 
harder than anything else and does not 
cut away as rapidly as fire brick or clay." 

Superintendent says: "We use 
HYTEMPITE for bonding fire brick in our 
heating furnaces, and have standardized 
on this material." 

Big Northern steel works uses 
HYTEMPITE for bonding stopper rod 
sleeve tile and laying fire brick "because 
nothing else stands this severe service." 

Pennsylvania steel works says: "We for- 
merly used fire clay for stopper rod tiles in 
bottom pour ladles, because it was cheap. 
But the cost for stopper rods was high, re- 
newals were frequent, many failures oc- 
curred, and much metal was spilled. We 
adopted HYTEMPITE because it was more 
economical and reliable. There has not 
been a single failure, the HYTEMPITE 
lasts seven times as long as tire clay, and 
maintenance cost is low."

HYTEMPITE is successfully used in many large 
coke, water gas and producer gas plants for a 
variety of applications, — the principal ones 
being :

Where HYTEMPITE is used for bonding fire brick and 
silica brick in water gas generators it gives a thin, 
strong joint. HYTEMPITE-laid linings withstand the 
severe scouring action of water spray on the hot refrac- 
tory, and stand up under abrasive and erosive action 
and shock in barring off the clinker. 

HYTEMPITE prevents penetration of steam through the 
joints of brickwork to the steel generator shell and thus pre- 
vents corrosion. It is also invaluable for pointing up cracks, 
hot patches, and general maintenance. A wash coating of 
HYTEMPITE over the entire lining protects it from the scour- 
ing action of flame and hot blast. 

Bond and surface brickwork in coal gas benches, retort set- 
titlffS, arches, recuperators and flues, with HYTEMPITE. It 
produces a solid, strong, air-and-gas-tight structure . . , pre- 
venting air leakage into waste gas flue where it would cause 
combustion. Withstands erosive action of blast and flame im- 

Producer Linings laid up with HYTEMPITE are assured of 
gas-tight joints — the brickwork withstands barring. 

Strong thin joints between bricks and blocks, joints that are 
air-and-gas-tight, are obtained. With HYTEMPITE, a bond is 
secured at room temperatures, which increases with heat, 
forming practically a one-piece lining. Hot gases, mechanical 
stresses and scouring will not affect such joints. The strong 
HYTEMPITE joints withstand impact of the bar and prevent 
loosening of the brickwork. 

HYTEMPITE is also invaluable for patching producer linings. 


HYTEMPITE is extensively used for 


HYTEMPITE, used for bonding refractorv mixtures, applied with 
the QUIGLEY REFRACTORY GUN, is the practice followed 
by many coke producers to seal coke oven jambs. HYTEMPITE 
mixtures adhere tenaciously to hot or cold surfs 

For patching door linings HYTEMPITE is used in combina- 
areas of coke oven doors are quicklv restored, by application of a 
bonding coat of neat (undiluted) HYTEMPITE to the part to 
be patched — then building out to original thickness by troweling 
on CAST-REFRACT. This method has given splendid results 
in a number of coke plants. The savings are substantial. 


Superintendent of a large New England gas works informi u^ : 

"We have used HYTEMPITE for the past 12 years for laying 
the silica brick walls of our retorts and have never known a 
failure. We find HYTEMPITE me requirement foi 

a high-temperature cement, and we never need to worrv about the 
res alts." 

Florida gas plant superintendent says: "We have tried all kinds 
of high-temperature cements, but none equals HYTEMPITE," 

Men at Eastern steel works (and by-product coke plaj 
patch coke oven jamb ioints with HYTEMPITE bv mean 
ijl'IGLEY REFRACTORY GUN The) have found ''nothing 
equals HYTEMPITE and a GUN for patching nts and 

making other • repairs." At th Lant men in 

various departments fight for U Y GUN to r.-pair 

furnace bottoms. The\

Petroleum refiners are large users of 
HYTEMPITE for a number of purposes; prin- 
cipally for laying up brick in side walls and 
arches of cracking stills; also for pointing up 
and repairing linings and for building mono- 
lithic baffles. QUIGLEY GAS/TITE Baffles 
(described on page 6) are in operation in great 
numbers of oil stills. They are easy to install at 
any angle, are extremely durable and gas-tight. 
HYTEMPITE mixtures are applied with the 
QUIGLEY REFRACTORY GUN for protective surfac- 
ing of furnace walls, repairing baffles in stills and boil- 
ers; for building up eroded furnace walls and arches, 
and for general maintenance. 

One of the recognrzed leaders in refinery design and construc- 
tion has practically standardized on the use of HYTEMPITE 
for new construction of this type, and has used hundred- of toni 
of this product with eminently satisfactory result-.

Many potteries find HYTEMPITE a necessary maintenance 
material. They use it for bonding and surfacing refra

It is also widely used for bonding brick 


Glass Plants find HYTEMPITE the ideal material for laying up and grouting brick 
in tanks — for caps and fire clay and silica brickwork above the tanks. (HYTEMPITE 
is not recommended in contact with glass. ) 
in regenerator checker chambers, jambs, 
arches, oven doors and ports and flue linings : 
for wash coating silica brick in roofs and flues ; 
for hot patching and general maintenance in 
these plants. 

HYTEMPITE protects the brickwork from soaking 
heat, and penetration of alkaline fumes from the 
fluxes used in glass making. As a maintenance ma- 
terial it greatly prolongs the life of the linings. Here 
is a typical report covering the performance of 
HYTEMPITE at a prominent glass plant: 

"The average life of a glass melting tank in this 
plant is fourteen to sixteen months. By the use of 
HYTEMPITE, mixed with crushed brick or silica. 
and neat HYTEMPITE for hot patching, life of tanks 
has been increased to TWEXTY NINE months. In 
addition, lehrs and other furnaces are regularly main- 
tained with HYTEMPITE." 

Entire brick linings of Pot Furnaces are laid with 
HYTEMPITE — walls, crown, checkers, flues, ports. 
Also for wash-coating of walls, ports and flues. 
HYTETMPITE produces a strong air-and-gas-tight 

lining, resistant to spalling due to sudden temperature 
drop when pots are rem 

In Lehrs HYTEMPITE is used for laying up brick 
in walls, roof, and combustion chamber arches. Also 
for wash coating of brickwork and for patching and 
general maintenance. It insures an air-tight and gas- 
tight muffle. 

Tuyeres which have become cracked or broken can 
be hot patched with neat (undiluted) HYTEMPITE 

if the fracture is n«<t too large. 


In addition to the many applications for HYTEMPITE 
as outlined in the foregoing pages under specific in- 
dustries, it is also widely used with utmost satisfac- 
tion for the following: 


A large number of municipal incinerators are built 
with HYTEMPITE as a bond for the refractories. 
Longer life and reduced maintenance are secured 
through its use. It protects the brickwork from soak- 
ing heat in the roof, and reduces spalling due to vary- 
ing temperatures. 

HYTEMPITE is used in these incinerators for laying 
up brickwork in walls and crowns of furnaces; also 
for walls and arches of fire boxes. 


HYTEMPITE is used for bonding, surfacing and re- 
pairing combustion chamber walls and arches under 
varnish kettles. It improves refractory performance 
by protecting brickwork from soaking heat and ero- 
sive action of flame and gases. 


HYTEMPITE forms a strong air-set bond when used 
for laying brick in brick-lined ovens.

Q-CHROME is a neutral chrome-base re- 
fractory cement. It is used for laying 
fire brick, chrome, magnesite, and other 
refractory brick and tile, in metallurgical 
and boiler furnaces where extreme tem- 
peratures and destructive slagging, 
chemical and abrasive actions are en- 

Q-CHROME is widely used in the steel and 
non-ferrous metallurgical industries because 
of its neutral refractory characteristics, and 
resistance to high temperatures, slagging and 
abrasive conditions. 

In boiler furnaces burning hog fuel, bagasse, 
high sulphur coal or oil, refinery acid sludge, 
low grade asphaltic oils, etc., Q-CHROME pro- 
vides a highly refractory and durable bond, 
which resists erosion and penetration of flame, 
gases and slag into the joints. 

These same advantages make Q-CHROME 
highly suitable for use in other types of oil, 
stoker, and powdered-coal-fired furnaces op- 
erated at high ratings. 

Q-CHROME is made of high-grade selected Rhode- 
sian Chromite containing a minimum of silica. It is 
especially processed to develop maximum plasticity and 
bonding strength. It is practically free from shrink- 
age, very resistant to abrasion and withstands fluctuat- 
ing temperatures. 

An outstanding quality of Q-CHROME is it? resist- 
ance to chemically active slags, particularly those of 
a basic nature. It prevents penetration of slag and 
molten metal. It resists erosion due to corrosive gases 
and fluxes. Q-CHROME does not flux the adjoining 
refractories, and serves as a neutral separating ma- 
terial to prevent reaction between refractories of differ- 
ent chemical composition. It is virtually non-reactive, 
even at very high temperatures, and can be used to lay 
chrome, magnesite, and other special bricks. Detail? 
in Bulletin No. 322. 


Q-CHROMASTIC is applied with a 
GUN on new or old furnace brickwork. It 
adheres tenaciously to wall surfaces . . . 
prevents flame penetration and minimizes 
slag adhesion . . . prevents fluxing and re- 
duces injury to brickwork in removing 
clinker . . . resists abrasion and flame ero- 
sion — and prolongs the life of furnace 
brickwork by "taking the brunt of 

Premature failure of refractory structures 
is not necessarily due to the temperatures en- 
countered in the furnace, but to the effect of 
impurities in the fuel — such as sulphur, alka- 
lies, iron, etc. These together are the basis of 
slags formed in combustion. They react with 
and flux the lining, lowering the fusion point — 
with consequent rapid erosion and destruction. 

Q-CHROMASTIC prevents this, because it 
acts as a neutral barrier between the brick, and 
the flame and gases, taking the brunt of 

Experience has shown that most oil slags do not ad- 
here appreciably, if at all, to Q-CHROMASTIC, due to 
its chemical inertness, high refractoriness, and hard 
dense surface which prevent slag penetration. 

This has been proved repeatedly in boiler and other 
types of furnaces burning low grades of oil or by- 
product fuels, and operated at high ratings. 

One of the most convincing demonstrations of 
Q-CHROMASTIC protection is to apply a brush coat of 
it on half a wall — the other half to remain uncoated as 
a check. The results are frequently startling — the 
more so when slagging conditions are severe. 

Q-CHROMASTIC protects the brickwork from the 
fluxing action of incandescent or molten ash. This action 
is particularly severe where low-grade coals are used. 
It is also a serious factor in powdered coal-fired 
furnaces. Details in Bulletin No. 315. 




INSULAG is a superior plastic refractory lag- 
ging and finishing insulating material for high 
temperature equipment up to 2200 F. It is 
also used to fire-proof bins, walls, columns, roof 
structures, etc. INSULAG does not shrink, ex- 
pands as it dries, sets quickly and bonds firmly 
to hot or cold surfaces. Has high crushing strength and 
does not bruise or break in ordinary service. Does not 
dissolve or collapse from contact with water. It is 
quickly and easily applied by molding, troweling or

battery of furnaces can be repaired in the time for- 
merly required to repair one. The GUN will quickly 
and efficiently fill cracks or holes, restore burned-out 
walls, surface new walls, or resurface old ones, and 
repair leaky baffles. 

An exclusive advantage of the QUIGLEY REFRACTORY 
GUN is that it handles premixed, properly seasoned refractory 
mixtures — of the proper consistency for the job. It shoots light 
or heavy mixtures as the job requires, with high velocity to any 
place in the walls and arches of furnaces. Because of the force of 
application, the mixture will stick to hot or cold surfaces where 
trowelled applications fail to hold. 

With the QUIGLEY REFRACTORY GUN and suitable mix- 
tures of HYTEMPITE and refractory aggregate, A-R MIX or 
Q-GHROMASTIC, slightly eroded furnace walls and arches can 
be restored to original condition . . . often saving a rebuilding job. 

Repairs can be made while the furnace is hot, and otherwise 
inaccessible places reached by the use of long extension nozzles, 
thereby saving the cost of a shutdown. The QUIGLEY 
REFRACTORY GUN often repays its cost in savings on a single 

The QUIGLEY REFRACTORY GUN is also used to apply
